The AFTCO Angler’s Bag, designed to carry all tackle and clothing accessories needed for any offshore multi-day fishing trip, is constructed from 100% waterproof, 600-denier Cordura with a molded-in, Spandura-covered EVA base that will completely protect the bag’s contents in over 2 inches of standing water. Measuring 23" long, 12" wide and 14" high for an easy fit in a boat’s cabin or on deck, the bag is extremely durable, padded on all sides with closed-cell foam, and is loaded with “specialty” pockets. At one end of the main clothing compartment (with zippered-pocket inside the flap) is a large pocket that holds a removable insulated cold-storage bag. At the other end are two large accessory pockets. The large bottom pocket on one side contains three clear plastic tackle storage boxes (supplied), while the pocket on the other side holds a Cordura-mesh lure roll-up (supplied) with clear vinyl closures designed for six or more large trolling lures. All zippers are waterproof and have over-sized pulls for ease of handling. Attached are side grab handles, a comfortable carry handle with neoprene closure, plus a removable shoulder strap.
